Beautiful, amazing, hilarious! Snow photos & videos from across Wiltshire and Hampshire

As a blanket of snow covers Wiltshire and Hampshire, and as schools across the two counties close, and the daily commute takes that bit longer... it hasn't stopped you from sharing your epic photos with us!

An Amber weather warning from the Met Office is in force for the next couple of days, because of the icy blast from Russia and Siberia.

The bad weather has meant that schools have been closed on Thursday (1st March) in Salisbury, Fordingbridge, Amesbury, Durrington, Bulford, Ludgershall, and Tidworth to name just a few.

And Storm Emma is set to cause more disruption with snow and ice through Thursday into Friday.

But while the Beast from the East may have almost blown us away with some crazy weather, we're not all that sad about it.

Especially when we gets stunning scenes like this...

Are you one of those who's stayed at home home today to avoid the bad weather?

It was looking beautiful in Tidworth today:

Jackie sent us this video - capturing the first outing for these cheeky chappies!

Don't forget to take care of your pets if they're kept outside. Bring them in to somewhere sheltered when the snow and bad weather is at its worst. Having said that, animals can be as fascinated by the blanket of white stuff as the rest of us.

Here's Fudge the rabbit investigating the snow, thanks to Kathryn Wesley for the photo...

The Met Office is promising more snow, more ice, and we can probably expect more disruption.

So, get cosy because this weather doesn't look like it's going to budge just yet.
